Getting aware of AWARENESS

August 17, 2012

The other day my father asked me... what is awareness? Cigarette smoking is injurious to health, while people still smoke. Why is it so? People are already aware that cigarette is injurious then why do they smoke? I didn't have a reply then and there. 

But as I think over it again and again, I feel may be because out of hundred, only one or two  will successfully quit smoking because they acted on it one final day and maintained that pattern of living without smoke for a very long time, until it became a habit... until it became effortless.
 
Someone acts and someone doesn't. That's the difference and I feel that's what awareness is. Simply being aware of something is not awareness, but acting on it consciously in real life is awareness. Catching the bull by the horn and not thinking or talking about the bull is what matters.
